Accessibility Services

AndiSites can help you with your website's accessibility, regardless of whether you're an existing customer or not. Find out what we can offer - including how to get a FREE accessibility audit!

What is Accessibility?

Accessibility, as it applies to the web, is a standard of rules set by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) called the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). 

These rules are in place to ensure your website is Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust (referred to by the acronym POUR) and therefore accessible, to a greater number of users. 

Here at AndiSites, we build and redesign all of our sites with accessibility in mind. 

Complying with the WCAG isn’t just the right thing to do, it also yields huge benefits for your site overall. 

Correcting your site’s HTML will mean screen-reader users have access to all your text. Fields and headings that are labeled properly mean users can navigate your site using their keyboards. Testing for responsiveness means users can also access your site from their cellphones and tablets.

All of this translates into more users on your site overall.

Here are the accessibility components we review and help with:

Content Accessibility

  • UX (User Experience)
  • Alternative text for images
  • Keyboard Navigation
  • Color Contrast
  • Heading level hierarchy
  • Link text
  • Broken links

Template Accessibility

  • Site Architecture
  • Color Contrast
  • Form field labels
  • Sitemaps
  • Keyboard Navigation 
  • Mobile Responsiveness

What about SEO?

We’re glad you asked! Accessibility has a big impact on your site’s SEO.

Adding alt text to images help screen reader users, but how is it helping my SEO? By increasing your SEO rankings through informing crawlers and allowing them to easily index images.

By optimizing aspects like alt text, page titles, headings, sitemaps, link and anchor text, navigation, and readability, you are making your site more accessible and increasing your site’s SEO.

What can I expect as return on my investment?

With accessibility remediation you see results immediately! That being said, site accessibility is a work in progress. Every time you add new content to your site it will need to be evaluated.

AndiSites partners with Equalize Digital to bring you expertise in everything accessibility. Having a team that can help you with compliance is the best way to ensure your site stays accessible.  And, as accessibility lawsuits become more common, it is important to stay on top of any errors as they arise.

You can expect increased traffic to your site, greater results in google searches, and an increase in time spent browsing your site. All this with the peace of mind knowing that you can be proud to have a site that is working towards a more inclusive web.

After we have implemented successful Accessibility remediation for a website, we like to run progress reports at the 6- and 12-month stages.
